The Oregon Housing Conference is a new interdisciplinary gathering of property owners and housing developers, lawmakers and public administrators, public health, law enforcement and community leaders, tenants and neighbors to discuss the Oregon housing crisis.
The theme of our conference is supportive housing for people with mental illness and addiction. Our goal is to educate the community and increase opportunities for supportive housing in Oregon.
The conference will be October 15, 2018 at the Doubletree Hotel in Portland, Oregon.
